The categories for the inaugural 2014 Tolkien Society Awards are:

  • Best Artwork
  • Best Article
  • Best Book
  • Best Novel
  • Best Website
  • Outstanding Contribution Award

The awards at the 2014 AGM cover the 2013 calendar year; there is no restriction on where books/articles/websites are published/hosted, but they should all be in English. Nominations, must be sent to current Tolkien Society Chairman, Shaun Gunner, and close on Friday April 4.
